would lose my house, everything. >> reporter: the pentagon calls the cuts stupid. and it's hard to disagree. get this, there's billions of dollars the pentagon wants to cut, but isn't allowed. like the upgraded m1 abrams tank, $3 billion. and the spy drone, $2.5 billion. you might think there would be urgent meetings at the white house, but there are none. no meetings or phone calls between the president and republican leaders. jonathan karl, abc news, the white house. >> certainly not encouraging. >>> it's expected to be an emotional day in the senate as lawmakers consider a revamped assault weapons ban. among those expected to testify are the parents of a child killed at sandy hook elementary. the nra promises to fight any restrictions on gun ownership. >>> and one-fifth of americans polled by kaiser family foundation admits they know a victim of gun violence. among the african-americans polled, 42% say they know a gun crime victim. 75% of latinos, 62% of african-americans and 30% of whites worry about being victimized themselves. >> i have to say, this is a story that transce

% of the pentagon's budget but the senate headed home without resolving a dispute over the president's pick to lead the military former republican senator chuck hagel. >> we need a secretary of defense on the job. no one, no one knows, especially in the united states senate what foreign challenge will face this country perhaps within the next ten days. >> reporter: republicans say they still have questions about hagel's foreign policy speeches his income and his qualifications for the job. so in a rare move they filibustered his nomination. >> he is the wrong person at the worst time for the job, this day we can and must do better. >> reporter: republicans say they probably will allow hagel to get confirmed when they come back from recess. democrats say if that's the case, why not just confirm him now? this was supposed to be secretary panetta's last week on the job but j.b. and norah, he says he'll stick around until a new defense secretary is named. >> nancy cordes, thank you so much. >>> double amputee olympian oscar pistorius is denying in "the strongest terms" that

news. new nuclear test overnight from a defiant north korea. nbc is live at the pentagon. mick, what's the latest? >> reporter: good morning, savannah. we've been here before. this one has set off some serious alarm bells. first of all, early readings indicate that this nuclear device exploded by the north koreans may have been anywhere from three to six times more power than than previous tests. at the same time the north koreans claim they were able to achieve that with a much smaller device. that would indicate that they could be making progress in miniaturizing a nuclear weapon and it could be put on a missile and theoretically launched at the you states. no one is confirming that, but it got everyone's attention. this blast got the immediate and sharp response from the white house. president obama says it threatens. u.s. national security. he says the united states will continue to take steps necessary to defend ourselves and our allies. and as matt mentioned a moment ago, the security council at the u.n. meeting at this moment to discuss tightening and increasing sanctions agai
